Zoono, unlike other antimicrobial products, works when dry. When applied to a surface by spraying, wiping or “fogging”; Zoono leaves behind a monomolecular layer that is permanently bound to the surface. The molecule is an antimicrobial, silicon based polymer that covalently bonds to the surface.
The molecule resembles an antimicrobial spike that pierces the microorganism. The “vibration” in the layer of spikes disrupts the complex molecular structure of cell walls and membranes of bacteria, fungi, yeasts and the structure of a virus. This causes the organism to break up with lethal effect.
The layer of molecular antimicrobial spikes carries on working for up to 30 days. Routine cleaning can continue and does not disrupt the Zoono molecule or its antimicrobial activity.
Zoono technology is not a replacement for routine cleaning to remove soils from surfaces. Cleaning remains an important part of the process to maintain and optimise the activity of the antimicrobial layer. Zoono can be used on any surface in any clinical, business or domestic environment. Our hand and skin formulations provide protection for up to 24 hours.
Zoono Formula & Action
Zoono is 3-trimethoxy silyl Propyl Dimethyl Octadecyl Ammonium Chloride. Simply termed as : AMOSIL. Zoono is applied through fogging machines. The fine mist of droplets forms covalent bonds to the target surface (both hard and fabric surfaces). Its unique disruptive nanotechnology based action can be likened to millions of spikes that attract and kill bacteria.
Zoono does not kill by toxicity or poisoning, the organisms cannot adapt to it = No mutation = No superbugs. The result is an antimicrobial that cannot diminish in strength, cannot leave the surface to which it is applied and cannot encourage the organisms that it targets to become used to it.
